SU Ag Center Shares Produce Preservation Training Video on YouTube

SU Ag Center Trainers
Baton Rouge, LA- The following training video (Preserving Produce via Canning, Freezing and Drying) was produced through a USDA Capacity Building Grant project entitled: "Eradicating Food Deserts through the Development of School Gardens," by the Southern University Ag Center and the Louisiana Public Broadcasting. The purpose of this video is to teach families and children transferable skills to grow their own fresh produce. The Southern University Ag Center (Baton Rouge, LA) is located in a food desert, which means there is limited access to fresh produce. This video was developed with the partnership of Exxon Mobil YMCA. The video can be view on the web via the Center's website at or through the YouTube Channel or by visiting
